All That is Gold Does Not Glitter

I was reminded today of this post from 5 years ago and was encouraged by it:

I've been pondering this line for a few days now: All That is Gold Does Not Glitter.

It is so true isn't it? The really sweet things in life, ministry, and faithfulness are not glamorous. Often, those things that please the heart of God do not get published in the newspaper or commemorated by a plaque. How many faithful, gospel-loving missionaries are out there right now doing what God has called them to do, without one ounce of "glitter."

Hospital visits do not glitter.
An hour on your knees in private does not glitter.
Sharing the gospel over a cup of coffee does not glitter.
Memorizing a chapter of Scripture does not glitter.
Building a church for a poor village does not glitter.
Holding a sick orphan does not glitter.
Ending this blog post to feed my son does not glitter...
